product ever! Now, Infocom introduces an exciting new Zorkian universe that's bigger and better than ever.

of role-playing games, and enhances the whole with an incredible new interface.
Dream times have befallen then Kingdom of Quendor. The wizards have mysteriously disappeared. The
Enchanter's Guild Hall lies in ruins. Villages are abandoned, drunken men mutter strange tales, and vicious
monsters haunt the streets and wastelands. Now it falls on you, a lowly peasant, to unravel the meaning behind
these ominous events. Will you accept the challenge?
Of course you will. For you're a hardy adventurer, ready to confront the most fearsome foe. And in , you have an arsenal of new weapons and abilities at your disposal.
You start by designing your own character. Choose from such diverse attributes as strength, endurance,
compasion, and luck, or let the computer select for you. As you venture onward, your character will evolve, reflecting
your success in your quest.
Beyond Zork's sophisticated new interface makes interactions more natural than ever. In the heat of
battle, the special function keys let you strike the decisive blow with a single keystroke. There's even an on-screen
map to chart your progress!
As you grow in experience and abilities, you realize that you're being prepared for a great task, a task
of which you know nothing... as yet. Your search for the answer will lead you deep underground, where unspeakable monsters
guard the world's most fabulous treasure - the fabled Coconut of Quendor.
